Tough to leave Lindsey Moore off the first team, a great, tough, hard-nosed leader. First teamer all the way.

How do the coaches leave Karisma Penn off of the first team? And how is Coach Bollant not the Coach of the Year?!

DocRoin on 3/5/2013 @ 12:31pm EDT Said:

GIve me a break… the coaches don’t thing Sam Ostarello is one of the 15 best players in the league? Shame on them. Their choices are mystifyling. Apparently the coaches just vote for their own players regardless how good opponents are. For Purdue being a 3rd seed, their players were sadly neglected by the coaches. Two players… both on the Third Team. That is ridiculous.

Sam Ostarello…ONLY player to average a double-double in conference play, leading rebounding for conference and on the 3rd place team. Totally agree with DocRoin! For her to be an HM by the coaches, is ridiculous. I totally agree with Ryan on Penn, mad props for her game and check her all around stats as well. I wonder how many times this season, the coaches said the key to winning the game is REBOUNDING and DEFENSE. Anyhow, had to vent, and agree it is usually politics from the coaches versus getting a true analysis of talent by the media.
